I’m always happy to not have to head to the grocery store (ugh, trolleys are the worst), and so when I was contacted by Meatcart a couple of weeks ago and realised they wanted to send me some meat samples, I was super excited and feeling ridiculously carnivorous.
Meatcart is an online butcher that provides an easy ordering system and delivery direct to your door. Meatcart has been in production for about 12 months and is based at Eagle Farm in Brisbane.
Now, I was sent a sample of their products and therefore didn’t have to negotiate the website, but ordering appears to be very simple. Meat is divided into types (beef, chicken, lamb etc) on the website and each meat is generally divided into 500g packs, with some also having 1kg pack options for a family. There is also a very helpful “Correct Weight” section, with low fat meat products being sold as perfectly proportioned calorie controlled small packs for those on a diet.
Ethically sourced meat is important, and the website does list that none of the chicken comes from battery hens, and the beef is 100% grass fed. There is also an organic meat section available as well featuring meat with the “Certfied Organic” accreditation.
Pricing is similar or even cheaper in most instances to supermarket prices, and the delivery charge is a flat rate of $6.50. Delivery takes place 2 business days after your order is placed (excluding Mondays).
Orders arrive between the hours of 9am and 5pm, and I was concerned initially that we wouldn’t be home for delivery however my concerns were not warranted. The delivery is able to be left in a safe place if you aren’t home, and the meat is delivered in an insulated cooler bag with ice packs inside, which has been tested to be safe to keep meat cold for 8 hours.
We recieved in our sample; 400g pack of Beef Filet Mignons, 500g pack of Lamb Rump Steak, 360g pack of Kids Superhero Sausages, 500g pack of Pork Loin Chops.
The Filet Mignons were the first thing we pounced on, and cooked them up immediately for dinner. We saved the Kids Superhero sausages for lunch on a weekend – these sausages have hidden vegetables so that kids don’t think they are eating something healthy!
The Meatcart experience was fantastic, and we were delivered great butcher’s quality meat. We are definitely going to make an order in future given that everything is so well priced, and conveniently delivered to our door!
